Methods and Applications of Longitudinal Data Analysis describes methods for the analysis of longitudinal data in the medical, biological and behavioral sciences. It introduces basic concepts and functions including a variety of regression models, and their practical applications across many areas of research. Statistical procedures featured within the text include:

descriptive methods for delineating trends over time
linear mixed regression models with both fixed and random effects
covariance pattern models on correlated errors
generalized estimating equations
nonlinear regression models for categorical repeated measurements
techniques for analyzing longitudinal data with non-ignorable missing observations

Emphasis is given to applications of these methods, using substantial empirical illustrations, designed to help users of statistics better analyze and understand longitudinal data.

Methods and Applications of Longitudinal Data Analysis equips both graduate students and professionals to confidently apply longitudinal data analysis to their particular discipline. It also provides a valuable reference source for applied statisticians, demographers and other quantitative methodologists.
